    I worked at Crescent Point Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    supports career development, young and dynamic company, can be fun, opportunity to create your own work.

    Cons

    Crescent Point is an old school boys club. The men, particularly management, protect each other in whatever way necessary which involves turning a blind eye to serious issues like sexual harassment (which is prevalent in this organization). The company encourages "team building", but this is just another way to say that they encourage drinking and partying. If you have morals and integrity it is very hard to turn a blind eye to the blatant disrespect of others, especially by people in positions of power. HR clearly supports management, and although this is not uncommon, Crescent Point likes to have them silence employees by making confidentiality agreements as common as signing policy.

    Advice to Management

    Non given as non would be taken.

    accountability is Zero ...pass the buck should be their name ....very poorly managed company..Project managers are very inexperienced very much a disregard to all CSA and ASME suggested standards and recommendations in SE SK and SW SK. Company uses ownership clause way too much.There will be problems in the near future with T-Sask. Operations very lacking in experience
    Vendors are very much a part of this equation
    Very much a old boys club

    Have a look around ...Facilities would be a good start

    I worked at Crescent Point Energy as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's a bistro that offers breakfast every morning and that includes lots of healthy choices too.

    Cons

    For me, I felt I was underemployed and management did not appreciate my level of professionalism and expertise. The department I worked in preferred to hire less experienced staff who are also less educated.

    I worked at Crescent Point Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture at the company; breakfast every morning, lots of leftovers from lunch, great people. Decent gym with tons of classes.

    Cons

    Lacks the formal training and base salary of a larger company. Tough to get in and get hired. Can sometimes feel overwhelmed with work

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, Well led company, upper management knows what is going on and is quite diligent

    I worked at Crescent Point Energy as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, young dynamic works force that works hard, and plays hard, relatively little red tape. Free breakfast every morning, decent gym and general attitude of promoting health and fitness. Friday afternoon's off in the summer.

    Cons

    Odd hiring practices, no removal of ineffective employees, concerns brought to management are agreed with, acknowledged and nothing gets done.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stagnate, don't allow creep of red tape, review hiring more carefully for fit and skill. Some people are hired due to their buddy buddy personality, others have zero social skills and it makes for an odd mix. Yes, there is a glass ceiling and men make more than women with similar qualifications and experience.
